Engel Receives 100+ Score on Final Humane Society 2018 Scorecard


Washington D.C. – Congressman Eliot L. Engel, a member of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, received a ‘100+’ on the Humane Society’s 2018 Final Scorecard for his perfect voting record supporting animal rights. The score includes his work on a range of issues, from protecting horses from slaughter to shark fin trade, to increasing funding for the Animal Welfare Act. The “plus” distinction signifies the Congressman’s leadership on animal welfare issues.


Engel had received a 100+ on the preview scorecard in October and has regularly received a 100+ score in previous years.


“I am always proud of my 100+ rating from the Humane Society,” Engel said. “It’s a reflection of my love for animals and the commitment I make as a member of the Animal Protection Caucus to their well-being and safety. I appreciate the work advocacy groups like the Humane Society are doing to fight for animal welfare and I’m proud to join them in that fight.”


The Humane Society Legislative Fund Humane Scorecard accounts for significant votes, cosponsoring critical pro-animal rights legislation, and advocacy for suitable funding to enforce animal welfare laws. The final scorecard will be released at a later date.
